Role of the FD: Strategist, Investor and Financier


The finance director plays a central role in any organisation. That is especially true in times of economic retrenchment. Yet while financial education focuses considerable attention on many individual finance tasks, relatively little attention is focussed on an integrated view of the role of the finance director. This course aims to provide such a view, with an emphasis on those aspects of the role that tend to be underplayed in formal education.
